In Iraq Fenk used her skills to make things for her family. She hand embroidered a beautiful Indian style dress for her sister and has knitted baby clothes as presents for her nieces and nephews. Fenk is gratedul for the opportunity to pick up her needles and start embroidering again at the Dignity Centre.
